Our Buxton Puppet Festival Activities
Funny Wonders co-presented the Buxton Puppet Festival with the Buxton Opera House. In particular, we helped promote the festival and to get the local community involved and even to perform in it!
We ran projects to create gigante puppets to parade at the start of the festival, puppets to parade in the Buxton Carnival to promote the festival and ran workshops to make puppets to put up around Buxton during the festival.
We also worked with local schools and community groups such as Brownies to help create a piece of puppet theatre to perform and with our own Youth Groups and Infant School Puppet Clubs to produce shows for the festival.
During the festival week, we also ran workshops, hosted national and international puppeteers and theatre groups, hosted national events and puppeteer network meetings.
